First Clip From ‘The Thing’! 1982 Had Suspense, 2011 Has Jump Scares!

Yesterday we brought you some new images from Universal’s upcoming prequel,The Thing and now we have our first clip from the film!

I kind of liked the trailer for this one and, like everyone else on the planet in their right mind, I’m a big fan of Mary Elizabeth Winstead fan and the 1982 John Carpenter film is one of my all time favorite movies, period. I’m holding out hope that this could be good!

Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter (Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.

Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr, The Thing is in theaters October 14th.
